On weight weenies forums (MTB one) the disk wheelset is said to have a claimed weight at 1520g.DIRT BOY said:I am hoping the disc version will be under or @ 1500g.
A ZTR setup will still win hands down in the weight category. With ZTRs and any lightish hub yer lookin at a 1/4lb right there. Add another 200g savings for a standard tire over a UST and you have some serious weight advantages going non-CrossMax. Could be a good training wheelset if the price is right.....you know that aint happenin': based on Mavic's pricing hx I'd expect these to go for around 800.00 in the first six months of release and then maybe 700.00 three years later. But hey, maybe they pay their workers a living wage in France. I'd take a look at 'em if'n they came out with a 29er wheelset, though @ that weight.DIRT BOY said:these will be THE wheelset to have. a sub 1450g UST wheelset? !!
No more rimstrips with valves to fail or sticky tape coming loose. Better sealing with UST rims with UST or latex.
At Sub 1450g and using sub 700g UST tires, you will have a really nice set that you can acutally RACE with almost no failures!
I am hoping the disc version will be under or @ 1500g.
Only thing is if the mavic hubs have improved. If they can improve even just slighty, the wheels will be sweetest yet!
Only downside is the price. if they are $800 they can so stick them where the sun does not shine....
Dirt Boy: the best news about the Mavic wheels for 2007 is that the freehub has indeed been improved.DIRT BOY said:Only thing is if the mavic hubs have improved. If they can improve even just slighty, the wheels will be sweetest yet!
WORD. The ZTRs are not yer bulletproof trail riding wheelset. They are a fast 'n light setup for racers and people under like 180lbs looking to ride faster on XC terrain. Hell, I destroyed a set of ZTRs last weekend! I went way too fast into a rock garden with the new Crows mounted up on my 29er. My bad. I was stupid. Am I going to bag on Stans for my idiocy? Nope. I promptly odered up a set of new ZTR hoops. Live and learn.Mr. Scary said:Because people that weigh 200+ lbs think they can ride a 350 gram rim and then complain when there are problems. You see this mindset alot on the 29'er board. Clydes looking for a sub 500 gram 2.4 meaty knobbed tire (rolleyes).
Trevor,Trevor! said:Claimed 1410g - I certainly doubt it. But it will be interesting to see.
They look alright - Custom wheels would still be better.
You r not far from the mark. I started with 20lbs and promptly rolled my front tire off the rim:madman: Aired up to 32lbs. It's no fault of the rims or the tires, actually. The rock that was respionsible for the horror show was a premeditated rim killa. My CrossMaxed woulda been toasted as well. Operator error.DIRT BOY said:You probaly ran your tire pressure too low for those ZTR with those Bird tires.
I crak up when they say 160lb riders using 22 psi with ZTR wheels and crow tires.
Hell even in florida with a little speed, you are going to hit a root and dent those priciy rims.
happend to my on a crossmax with 35psi (162lbs) a few years back. Falt spotted a really nice Crossmax SL rim.
Same trail/speed with UST tires @ 32psi and no issues!!
